Only on the New York City Subway

Story #1: Overheard on the subway during the evening commute:

Two well-suited young men, Wall Street types, speaking to each other.

Man #1: Yeah, I heard Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was worth reading.

Man #2: I heard that, too. But I just can't bring myself to read it. I'm just such a big fan of Jane Austen's original book, that I think it would just piss me off to see what this guy has done to the story.

Man #1: I'm totally with you on that!

Story #2: This morning, a homeless man on the C train stood up and shouted, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am tired and hungry, and would appreciate it if someone could give me a ham and cheese sandwich, please."

Apparently he thought he was ordering at a deli.

Since I had a bag of roast beef sandwiches with no cheese, I didn't offer because I hate rejection.

I would totally get along with the guys discussing Jane Austen. I can't bring myself to read any of the zombie books because I love the originals so much.

I wonder if he would've accepted a tuna or roast beef if offered?

I LOVE NY -- and mention your fair city in my current post. Even my current header is about loving NY! :)

He's not picky, he's.... keeping kosher? No, wait, that's not it.
